Museum marks milestone

Parrsboro - The Fundy Geological Museum honoured Kathy Ogden during its 15th anniversary celebrations on Dec. 11.

Kathy (Goodwin) Ogden began at the museum as a student 14 years ago and was the Fundy Geological Museums lab manager before leaving her position in May of 2008 for a job in Halifax within the Nova Scotia Museum family.

We at the museum couldnt imagine those 14 years without her, were grateful for all the hard work Kathy has done in the museums lab, Cumberland Geological Society chair Karen Dickinson said.

Ogden accepted the gift presented to her by Dickinson and Fundy Geological Museum curator Ken Adams, which was a photograph by Lawrence Nicoll of the Bay of Fundy skyline following the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on the twin towers in New York.

Along with the presentation to Ogden during the museums 15th anniversary, the vote for the best Christmas tree entry for the museum Christmas Tree Exhibit was voted on. Following a tally of votes it was announced that the

Parrsborough Shore Historical Societys tree came in first place.

Following the tree exhibit announcement, the crowd was entertained by Jeannie Trider.
